Audi taking potshots?

Just saw an Audi commercial on CNN about thier racing history and quattro system. Do you think they were taking potshots at MB when they say they never rest on their laurels?

I absolutely love automotive trivia/history. It's interesting to learn about engineers and designers, etc.

In fact, Ferdinand Porsche once was employed by Mercedes! He was hired by Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft as its technical director in 1923. He later left the company in 1928 (known then as Daimler-Benz) and subsequently founded his own design bureau in 1931 which developed such diverse devices as the Volkswagen and the V-16 Auto Union Grand Prix racer. Obviously, the rest is history.

AUDI actually began as the conglomoration of four different companies: Horch, DKW, Wanderer and Audi to form “AUTOUNION”. Each of the four “rings” in the Audi logo represents the one of the four manufacturors....

I'm having too much fun with this.....need to get some work done.
